Lee & Elaine
A woman takes a winter rental in East Hampton, near the famous artists' cemetary, Green River, and becomes obsessed with the graves and lives of women artists who are buried there. They're mostly the wives of more famous men, especially Elaine De Kooning and Lee Krasner, the wife of Jackson Pollok. She plans to write a book in which Lee and Elaine come back as ghosts, as lesbians and as lovers. When Elaine's stone is discovered to be missing one day, all hell breaks out in the narrator's real life. She's forced to start anew, alone, everything different. At a time when the reputations of Pollock, De Kooning and Abstract Expressionism are at their highest, 'Lee & Elaine' reminds us of the gifted women in the background. This is a brilliantly funny, sharp book about romance, life, death, and artistic creation.
